Well, I have SOME. *blushes*
I collect trollbeads and pandora (bead style bracelets), I love thomas sabo as well.. jewelry, but to be honest most of my jewelry is beads from trollbeads, I only started to really focus on jewelry end of last year, and I overdid myself, spent soome thousands already. as they have different prices and i can buy by pieces, i dont feel nearly as much as if i bought a 500 bracelet at once, but some of mine trollbeads bracelets are well over that when finished.
I also love books, and read really fast, say a 500 pages book in one or two days. yeah… havent bought that many this year, but i can defnitely spend entire days in book stores, just choosing the perfect books.
I am also collecting some vinylmation (disney designer toys) and usually buy complete cases, that go for around 300 euros each. i have 5 complete cases. keep in mind i started to collect in april only… but i only want 10 or 12 whole collections, they already have a destination and will double as a collection and wall art! 😀
I have the collectors gene, I swear I cant control it. :p
Shoes bags and clothes… i havent spent so much on that recently, but whenever i visit my mother she gives me shoes so i almost dont need to buy it on my own. she is a shoe addict (see what i ean about the collectors gene?) and has a closet JUST for her shoes, neatly organized in shelves from floor to ceiling, plus some more in boxes, she has well over 150 pairs! i have only 30 or so, including flip flops and boots. we used to have the same shoe size when i was younger, so I would just choose from hers when I wanted something else, it was amazing! but i became one size bigger than her. boo. 🙁
As for handbags, I dont have any designer handbags, but plan to have a couple someday. so far i really would say jewelry is what I am spending the most with. I also spend a resonable ammount on house decor, but Im really picky about what I want, and it takes time to find something that matches my mental image. I am a shopaholic and high maintenance I suppose, when I write it all down. makes me kind of ashamed, but as this is a forum and no one here knows me in real life, i dont feel so bad to share.
For my husband, his one thing is eletronical gadgets, needs to have everything apple! and also some music devices (he is into elektro music and makes his own, so he is always looking for gadgets to produce different sound, make your voice sound different and whatnot).
We both like to travel, we just dont do it it nearly as much as we wish, due to his limited vacation times, but this year we went to Paris Cologne (3 times) and Amsterdam, I went to Paris once more with a friend and next month will go to London and end of the year to Brazil. I hope me and my husband can squeeze some time to go to Paris (we LOVE it there) once again this year, we will also go to the oktoberfest. so a good year travelling-wise
Life is too short, I think we should enjoy it as much as possible while we can
